My latest birdie is dressed in white silk and a green spring bonnet! She's keeping Martha's doll company until she leaves for Texas on Thursday.
Let me begin with the weather. For the first time this year, I was able to go out in just a light jacket, wearing my Keds. Look Ma, no socks! I was able to open all the windows and let the air in. I was able to stop and listen to the incessant chattering of birds.
I was delighted to hear that my flock of birds made it safely to The Plumtree. I am so jazzed about my little tweeties being there -- you have no idea!
I opened a shop at DaWanda (see the sidebar at left); it's similar to Etsy, but it's free to list and, more important, it exposes me to Europe. I had to convert prices to Euros and use metric for measurements, but I quickly got the hang of it. Now I just hope items will sell.
I had afternoon tea with two of my former colleagues, and that was really pleasant. I hope to be dropping in regularly. I really thrive on the contact, and I want to keep these friendships. After running a few errands in town, I came home, and made a few more things. I really should get started on packing my bag for my little trip, and wrapping several big canvasses to take onboard with me. I had my sister and nephew choose a few of my paintings, and they were happy to do so. It's wonderful when your family really likes your work.
